Santa Cruz Indivisible is pleased to join other political and activist groups in our community to help strengthen the ties in our community and focus our efforts on building a better future together.
Indivisible South County works closely with Santa Cruz Indivisible and Indivisible groups in Monterey County. Because southern Santa Cruz County has such a large immigrant population, which is among the demographics most threatened by the Trump agenda, we believe that Indivisible South County can fill an important niche by focusing on issues that affect the Immigrant community. You can join us on our closed Facebook group for ongoing updates and to learn about events, follow us on Twitter to keep up on the news, or join our email list, using the contact information below. We have over 500 members already. Please join our growing community!

Every first Sunday in June, the Santa Cruz County Community joins with the voices of LGBTQ communities and their allies around the world in celebration of Pride Month. The Santa Cruz Pride Parade & Festival has been made possible for 40+ years because of the – often brave – time, talent, and treasure contributions of our Santa Cruz County community members. As a community member, we ask for your monetary support in creating a safe space for our community members to gather, celebrate, listen, shout, chant, march, learn, exist, break bread, honor, speak, enjoy one another’s company.
The Santa Cruz Dreamer Project(SCDP) is a group of local undocumented people fighting for the rights of the undocumented youth in Santa Cruz County. SCDP was recently founded by Gabriela Cruz, a DACA recipient and community organizer with Sanctuary Santa Cruz. Our mission is to help provide a safe space amongst our undocumented peers and allies. We also aim to ensure that the undocumented youth in our community have the tools to pursue a higher education and help guide them through the education system. We believe that the youth have the power to make change in our community and our role is to create space for young leadership to flourish within the movement.
We are an affiliation of artists joined together by our shared belief in the power of art to effect social change and protect democratic values. Our creative skills support progressive social actions in our local community and beyond.

We’re a different kind of museum, one that focuses on building community here in Santa Cruz County. We build community through exhibitions, events, and projects that connect people to art, history, ideas, and each other. We believe that art and history are for everyone, and we work hard to offer experiences that connect people from many walks of life: across generations, ethnicity, and background. That means multi-cultural festivals, exhibitions filled with wonder, partnerships throughout the county, and surprising, fun connections with people and ideas across our community.
